This jerk tofu with mango-lime salsa is giving us tropical sunshine in a bowl, no matter when or where we cook it. The recipe calls for store-bought jerk seasoning, but you can also easily make your own blend and dial in the flavors and spice level to your taste.

Jerk Tofu with Mango Lime Salsa

Servings
4
Duration
30 min

Ingredients

  • 4 limes, juiced, divided
  • 2 tbsp jerk seasoning such as Primal Palate Organic Spices Jerk Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 14-oz pkgs organic extra-firm tofu, each cut into 8 planks, pressed with paper towel to remove liquid
  • 2 mangos, peeled, pitted and diced
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, loosely packed
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds
  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut, toasted

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, combine one-half of the lime juice with jerk seasoning, ginger and garlic. Add tofu; gently turn to coat. Set aside. (Tip: For more intense flavor, marinate in the fridge for 20 minutes or longer.)
  2. Prepare salsa: In a large bowl, toss together mango, cilantro and remaining one-half of lime juice. Season with salt, to taste. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Working in batches, add tofu and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, flipping once, until golden brown. Serve tofu with mango salsa and top with almonds and coconut.
